Brodinski thumped onto the international scene at the end of his teenage years in 2007. His first release, Bad Runner, shot him straight onto the crest of the electro-house wave, on a level with contemporaries Busy P, 2manydjs, Tiga and Erol Alkan.
A born collaborator, Brodinski began working with Gestaffelstein through his own label Bromance, established in 2011. This working relationship culminated in the pair producing two tracks for Kanye West’s Yeezus, along with Daft Punk and a notoriously impressive host of other artists.
The work on Kanye’s album is telling of Brodinski’s ongoing infatuation with hiphop, as was demonstrated in his earlier beat-influenced techno tracks and his decision to release music by the likes of Danny Brown on Bromance. This is more present than ever in his recent work – after spending a while hiding out in Atlanta, he’s back with Southern-style mixtape The Sour Patch Kid, featuring artists Yung Booke, Hoodrich Pablo Juan and Johnny Cinco.
